Teri (& Luke)’s pick:

Laryssa Birdseye is one busy musician; television appearances, interviews, music video shoots, and starting Sunday, a week long residency at McMenamins Al’s Den. Each night she’ll welcome some of Portland’s talented as her guest (Pretty Gritty, Wil Kinky​,​ Low Key​,​ WomenCrush Music​, ​Sarah Clarke​, ​Haley Johnsen​), and a surprise for the final night.​ Al’s Den is a really cool intimate venue in the basement level of the Crystal Hotel. Their week long residency’s feature touring musicians as well as Portland’s own. The music is early, 7-10 p.m., and always free. It’s even more fun when you can go multiple nights during a musician’s residency to really get a feel for their versatility as an artist.

Patrick’s picks:

Thursday, March 1 Wood Brothers, The Mastersons at The Crystal Ballroom

Indeed, The Wood Brothers’ sixth outing, ‘One Drop of Truth,’ dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles and influences. Whereas their previous outings have often followed a conceptual and sonic through-line, here the long-standing trio featuring brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with Jano Rix treat each song as if it were its own short film. The plaintive, country-folk of the album’s opening track “River Takes The Town” gives way to the The Band-esque Americana soul of “Happiness Jones.” The wistful ballad “Strange As It Seems” floats on a cloud of stream of consciousness, standing in stark contrast to “Sky High”—a Saturday night barnburner built upon stinging slide guitar funk. “Seasick Emotions” is rife with turmoil, yet “Sparking Wine” is jaunty and carefree. The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers’ most dynamic recording to date.

Nastacia’s Pick
:

Friday, March 2 Fortune’s Folly, Mech at White Eagle

Eugene-based four-piece Fortune’s Folly had been called “the love child of Red Hot Chili Peppers and No Doubt” – an arguably more apt description of the dynamic group than “alternative rock.” And it’s exactly that energy that’s going to bring down to McMenamins White Eagle on March 2nd. I plan on coming in my dancing boots and skating my tail to their signature songwriting and tunes. And it doesn’t hurt that local favorite MECH is the opening act – sure to set the stage with grungy grooves. Show kicks off at 9 p.m. Just show up with the $8 cover charge at the door.
